UPDATE: Raleigh, NC police arrested 19-year-old Mikkail Jamal Shaw on Tuesday night after he turned himself in.
Scotty McCreery and a few of his friends were the victims of a home invasion at their Raleigh, North Carolina apartment early Monday morning. Scotty is a sophomore at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, and he and his buddies were at home around 2 a.m. when three armed people broke into the apartment and left with wallets, cash and electronic items.
No one was hurt, but they were all shaken up.
Scotty issued a statement on Twitter saying, "It was definitely a very scary night. Luckily my friends and I are safe . . . I will share more when the time is right, but as of now we do not want to do or say anything that could hinder the investigation. Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support. A huge thank you to the Raleigh PD for their quick response and hard work in solving this case."
Scotty will return to the road on May 16th with a show in Harris, Michigan.
